Monthly and one-time gifts from our community make all the difference!

The Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre (ORCC) is a registered Canadian charity (Charitable Business Number: 119109221 RR0001) that supports and empowers survivors of sexual and gender-based violence. ORCC is a survivor-centred, anti-oppressive, feminist organization committed to fostering a sense of safety and a strong foundation for our clients in their healing journey. Our team also works to build a more robust community response calling for awareness, safety, and prevention protocols while advocating to dismantle oppressive systems perpetuating these targeted acts of violence.

It takes collective efforts of a caring community to end sexual and gender-based violence. In 2022, ORCC offered 2638 trauma-informed counselling sessions for people who had experienced sexual and/or gender-based violence. Despite our best efforts, wait times to receive supports continue to increase.

Your donation helps ensure we continue to provide safe and accessible services that people who have experienced sexual and/or gender-based violence can rely on.

As a registered charity with the Canadian Revenue Agency all donations from individuals are eligible for a charitable tax receipt.

Thank you for your support!
